[ laughter ] this is too much. [ applause ] it got crazy. and during the debate, people noticed there was a woman that kept screaming in the audience. [ light laughter ] yeah. and then hillary was like, "i'm sorry, i just love how this is going." [ laughter ] [ applause ] aahh! at one point during the debate when donald trump repeated himself, marco rubio -- who was also mocked for repeating himself called trump out on it. take a look at this. plans. you'll have so many different plans. many different plans. >> now he's repeating himself. >> no. no. [ cheers and applause ] no. i don't repeat myself. i never repeat myself.
[ applause ] >> jimmy: i repeat, i don't repeat myself.

[ laughter ] come on. turn that thing off. it's not supposed to be on. and like always before the debate, the moderator went over the rules. normally candidates are cut off by a bell when the time is up. but last night was a little different. take a look. >> and as the candidates requested, a bell will sound like this. >> damn, daniel.
